Part of the innovative I.D. Works line of tools from Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT), Launce Barber and Tom Stokes designed the Guppie as a hard-working carabiner tool with dozens of everyday uses.
The adjustable wrench jaw opens to 1/2-inch so you can use it for all kinds of light repair and assembly jobs. Thanks to the carabiner gate, the Guppie is easy to carry on a belt loop, D-ring, pack, or rope. (But it is not a weight-bearing carabiner.)
The high-carbon stainless steel blade with a razor-sharp edge can be opened and closed with one hand using the blade slot. A removable bit carrier is also a high-intensity LED light, and it has two strong magnets to hold it securely to the Guppie’s left side. The stainless steel clip will hold the Guppie in your pocket or on gear, which gives a lot of versatility. The Guppie makes a great little money clip, too, for those who like to keep a thin wallet.
One more trick: The Guppie carabiner detent will open bottle caps and metal jar lids.
